Our First Home

This past week has been really incredible! Not only did I get to see Beach House (my favorite band) perform live, but Joey and I became homeowners!  We closed on a 2 bedroom condo in the heart of Belltown.  It was a short sale, so we got a great deal; however, short sales are such a hassle. We put our offer in during June, so it took quite a long time.  If you are the impatient type (which I am), then short sales are probably not for you.  Luckily, Joey is a very patient guy, so he convinced me to relax and just wait.  I’m glad he did, because we now own our dream home!  The best part of the condo complex is the rooftop deck.

Even though the home is pretty spectacular as is, it needs a little bit of love.  The previous owner had unusual taste in paint colors, so Joey and I have began the task of fixing in up to better fit our style.  Over the next few months, I’ll be sharing photos of all of the exciting projects we are working on.

It is a little ironic that I started my week seeing the aptly named Beach House perform and ended my week with the keys to our very own house.  Overall, I would say it has been a spectacular week.

    I came across your blog via the Elle Decor article that featured your contact paper idea for your rental. Great blog – and we both live in Seattle. I’m just down the street in lower QA. Welcome to the city.

      Thank you! I’m so glad you like my blog.

      You live in Lower Queen Anne??? That is awesome. I love living in Belltown. It’s never boring. And it is so close to other beautiful neighborhoods like Lower Queen Anne. One of my favorite things about living in Seattle is the distinctive personalities of each neighborhood.
